MS-Access style continuous data form ?

3 posts in this topic

I am using AutoIT to extend functionality of our MRP system, and using examples and this forum, have cobbled together a script which is used by my warehouse staff to write some data into a SQL table, to record when there are shortages on order picking.

I now want the Goods-In staff to be able to monitor the same data as they are booking goods in, so that they know where there are shortages in production.

I can access the SQL table and populate a label with a list of the shortages for any given item using GUICtrlCreateLabel, but I can't work out a way of being able to update each record to flag the shortage as complete. I can't just update them all because I may need to "ration" out the incoming goods.

Can anyone please point me to either some sample forms or the appropriate keywords to find examples of a multiple-record form like the continuous forms/recordsets as used in MS Access subforms.

Thanks in Advance

If I recall right, you will find a sample in Scripts called "scrollable window" . Wonder if it it is @gafros that made it. Could be that there is a link in his signature (I have sig. turned off, and don't bother to turn it on to check). It probably will involve GuiRegisterMsg and dllcall so do a search for those in that forum.

Thanks for this Uten - Part One now sorted ! . I'm still stuck on how I get more than one record on the form in the first place - any pointers would be much appreciated.
